In contemporary Italian literature the study of humor is not systematic and often uses old theories such as those of Bachtin and Bergson. In this PhD thesis I try to widen the method to other disciplines and to set up a Canon that starts from Pirandello up until the nineties. As a result, the theoretical part connects anthropological, neuroscientific, cognitive linguistics and cultural history studies. The aim is to set up a ductile method that gives the possibility to evaluate different angles of humor and, at the same time, to offer a valid support to the study of the humorous text in its historical dimension. The choice of the writers that were examined builds a small reference Canon of this literary genre in Italy that does not evaluate only the artistic value, but also the public diffusion. Since humor is a genre very influenced by the historical moment and the mentality, this study also deepens the events and the historical context in which the narrative works are written.
